I'm tired of fighting the scalpers. I'll just wait for them to be widely available. They will be eventually easily available to everyone, and right now there's not a single next-gen game (on either platform) that has me itching to switch over immediately.

I have to imagine IOI will want to distinguish Project 007 from Hitman. They're certain to have heard: "Oh, it's just going to be Hitman reskinned with James Bond!"

Hitman is a social stealth puzzle game - which touches on James Bond, but also isn't. I imagine IOI will make this game a bit more "action-y" and tap to their past like Freedom Fighters or Kayne & Lynch. Will there be some aspects of Hitman in this new 007 game? I'm sure, but I'm betting IOI will have a strong desire to be sure to keep these games distinctive in their own ways.

Minecraft. IMHO, there's no doubt on this. I get folks saying Dark Souls, Mass Effect, etc, but nothing has had the reach, influence even outside of gaming that Minecraft has had.

Folks, Trevor @ IOI announced the following:

The bummer is that it appears that it's only for consoles (PS4/XBox One) and no mention of PC, but still exciting nonetheless!

It's definitely dated, and I completely understand the current criticisms on it, but I absolutely loved that game. Except the final boss fight.

I'm saddened that no one has still played the contract yet (PS4/XBox One ver)! :(

@w00master: what? The cut off period would be 31st December. Anything released in January is eligible for that years GOTY award, which is deliberated and given the following January.

You're not understanding what I'm saying. If you moved GOTY to January, the cutoff period would have to change - most likely not include games in January of earlier that year (like in my example before: you wouldn't be able to include Monster Hunter World) vs what we have currently which is cutting off December. It's basically an endless feedback loop then: GOTY in dec (like it is now)? Well, can't really count games in Dec. Likewise, move GOTY to Jan? You wouldn't be able to include games from January from the previous year. So which is it? That's the feedback loop. In either case, you'd have to not include one of the months in the year.

I think the additional problem is that you run into a feedback loop on this as games do come out in January. So what do you do about the January games then for GOTY? As an example, "Night in the Woods" was released in January, as was "Monster Hunter World."

Eventually, you have to decide when to do GOTY and establish some sort of "cut off period." In either case, there will be games that are released during that time.
